How Kendall Jenner Achieved a Net Worth of over $40 Million

Kendall Jenner

To begin with, the $40 million number seems rather high for Kendall Jenner’s net worth, though when you read the rest of the article you may agree that the estimates reported on the Internet are actually lower than this estimate. Kendall Jenner has done very well for herself as a model, reaching the top spot in the opinion of many critics and experts. We will look at some of her accomplishments and see how the numbers add up. Kendall is both a Jenner and a Kardashian, and when you use the name Kardashian you almost always have to connect it to a reality show. That holds true here, and Kendall has made a sizable chunk of money from her reality shows.

Another modern reality is that popular and famous people always have a social media presence that they use to churn out income from either advertising or self-promotion. Kendall has also connected herself to this financial gravy train, being listed in the top 20 most followed celebrities on the Instagram platform. Instagram and Instagirl are connected realities in the world of Instagram, and Kendall definitely qualifies as one amassing almost 84 million followers. Her position was responsible for knocking off Giselle Bundchen off of the top earning spot in the modeling industry.

There are a large number of income sources for Kendall, and though she is only 22 years old she has found her way to maximizing that income since she was 19. Even as far back as 2011 when she was only 16 she gained a contract with Wilhelmina Models where her first modeling job for Forever 21’s Rocker Babes with a Twist was shot. In 2014 she would earn $4 million off of her fame and name. By the middle of 2016, she would add another $10 million to that total.

But this is 2018, and having taken over the top spot in earnings it appears she easily exceeded the widely reported $18 million in net worth. She advertises major brands on her Instagram and other social media accounts, including Estee Lauder, Adidas, and La Perla. Forbes estimates her 2016 income to be $17 million and her 2017 income to be $22 million, so unless she went on a serious shopping spree it seems that the lion’s share of that is safely invested or saved somewhere.

The sticking point in determining her actual net worth is that her and sister Kylie have a number of joint ventures together, so even if you do the simple 50-50 split, which may not always be accurate, Kendall’s actual net worth can be exaggerated. Consider this list of Kendall and Kylie joint ventures:

  • Creative Directors of the Gillette Venus Gets Ready with Kendall and Kylie Jenner webisode series
  • Pascal Mouawad’s Glamhouse for the Metal Haven by Kendall and Kylie jewelry collection
  • Steve Madden’s Madden Girl for Nordstrom
  • The Kendall and Kylie Collection with PacSun in 2013
  • The Kendall and Kylie collaboration with Topshop
  • The Kendall and Kylie app released in 2016

You can muddy up the net worth total even more if you add to all this the fact that Kendall’s younger sister Kylie is approaching the $1 billion mark at the ripe old age of 20. So there may be more than meets the eye when estimating Kendall’s net worth considering the large number of collaborations and the known net worth of her younger sister.

Another factor that weighs in to reducing Kendall’s overall net worth is she doesn’t appear to have the same business sense as her sister or other in the Kardashian clan. While she garners so much attention for her fame and modeling career, she apparently didn’t stop to think much about what the price of fame involved. In July, 2016 she bought a Kardashian-worthy place in Hollywood Hills, California from John Krasinski and Emily Blunt for $6.5 million. Only 11 months later she would sell the abode for a paltry $350,000 profit after realizing the security issues were a constant problem.

Security issues? It’s hard to imagine the decision making process here since when you are on the cover of Vogue and the face of Estee Lauder anyone who follows celebrities will know who you are. There are enough creepy peeps out there for any woman to act with caution and discretion in her daily life, but an international model and someone who has a direct Kardashian connection?

Now we arrive at the point to try and estimate Kendall’s net worth. At the beginning of the article the $40 million figure was tossed out for consideration, but it may actually be even higher than that. The commonly reported $18 million figure seems way too low, especially when considering the large number of Kylie-Kendall collaborations there have been over the years. Apparently we will have to wait until there is enough accurate data to sift through and come up with a realistic total.
